Fraud and Financial Crimes Summit



20th Feb 2019 | The One and Only - Royal Mirage, Dubai, UAE

Why attend

Effectively combating Fraud and Financial Crime continues to be an important agenda item for the boards of many organisations across the Middle East. It is of particular relevance to Financial Services where technology continues to challenge existing business models as customers demand convenience, security and increasingly innovative products. Remaining competitive in this environment requires a reassessment in the way in which shareholder assets, customer deposits and enterprise data are secured and managed.

SAS is organizing a half-day workshop on 20th February 2019 at Royal Mirage - The One and Only to provide an opportunity for attendees to understand how cutting-edge analytics can help address the challenges associated with combatting Financial Crime. We have invited a panel of international subject-matter experts to explain how SAS is working with Tier 1 clients across many geographies to deploy anti-Fraud, Money Laundering and Tax Evasion solutions. Our speakers will also share their experiences of best practice deployment approaches. 


We look forward to seeing you on the 20th February at The One and Only, Royal Mirage
